Say goodbye to the home office, the coffee shop, and the cubicle. Co-working is about large, open, shared environments that allow you to work independently, collaborate, or move from workspace to workspace in search of the perfect productive environment. We have all the amenities of a high-end office without the hefty overhead. Change the way you work today.

Small spaces, big ideas. The Transfer Station's co-retail model changes the way we think about buying and selling by offering prime retail exposure and management solutions with minimal overhead. Now artists, makers, and manufacturers of all sizes can have their products showcased and sold on Main Street with minimal time and monetary commitments!
If you're just getting started or want to begin as small as possible, retail gallery space is available starting from a single shelf. Big enough for a small jewelry display, this option provides you with a dedicated glass enclosure.
If you would like to showcase your work on a wall, be it a painting, photograph, or other vertically-mountable product, we have dedicated gallery wall spaces available up to 4' x 8'
If you're interested in having your own dedicated display case, we have modular case options available - tall and thin or low and wide, both lockable glass enclosures. Use this option to create your own micro-store!
If you would like enough space to think outside the (display case) box, dedicated areas of our gallery can be reserved to build your own custom display, and create your own store-within-a-store.
COMING SOON The Transfer Station isn't just about beautiful spaces and affordable services - it's about self development and professional growth. We'll be offering a schedule of courses that teach real-world skills and common business practices, along with regular office hours hosted by local business experts.
COMING SOON The heart of The Transfer Station is collaboration - meeting and working with likeminded individuals. Soon, we'll begin hosting an array of regularly-scheduled events that encourage networking, showcasing, and sharing. Interested in hosting a class or an event at Transfer East? LET US KNOW

Built in 1925 as a power station for Manayunk’s “dinky” trolley line, 114 Green Lane has sat idly on the corner of Main Street and Green Lane for well over two decades. We aim to bring new life to this beautiful historic property, and we hope you’ll join us in lighting it up once again! We’ve been working on The Transfer Station concept for several years now, and it’s our greatest pleasure to finally be able to invite you to become a part of it. Sign up, let us know what you think, and share this concept with friends. Let’s make history in Manayunk. Together.
